Hey Guys!Hope you had a fab weekend?
Sky Greats HD has been showing the ‘Karate Kid’ I, II & III. I’m currently watching Karate Kid II directed by John G. Avildsen. It was written by Robert Mark Kamen.
While watching it, there was a part that struck me and I thought I’d share. The Karate Kid was telling his Sensei that he was basically tired of life and his Sensei replied saying: ‘when you tired of life go back to basic‘ as he said this, the Sensei put his hands together and for some reason it confused the Karate Kid for he thought his Sensei meant he should go back to praying. But his Sensei corrected him saying : ‘basic of life breathing‘, ‘breathe is life‘…

Now here is Le konsphin’s story:
Lekonsphin makes use of organic leather for her designs and her products are produced in Portugal, where she resides. This enables her to ensure that the process and production are done in an ethical way. But that’s not where the story gets interesting!
Her fabrics are produced in Vietnam and guess what?? It serves as a source of income for the families producing these fabrics. The women are able to work from home and take care of their families at the same time. Now that’s killing two birds with one stone!!!
Did you know that you will be donating 5% to projects like Red Dream project in Vietnam, when you buy her products?
Well, hurry and be sure to visit our website at www.ecoluxelondonboutique.com to see more pieces by LeKonsphin. Like us on facebook too!
Whether it’s the theme or the story behind sustainable fashion items, there’s always an interesting side to it. Hear more from our designer- Romero Bryan
Sometimes efforts of those in the creative industry are not being recognised by the world. This has been the inspiration behind Romero Bryan’s pieces. The theme was that of ‘personality being chipped away at’. His layered pieces tell a story of how ladies can feel comfortable and bold in their outfits without feeling like they can never be heard.
He spends a lot of time researching into the concept of his pieces as well as fabric and guess what? Market research! Yes, market research. Romero says that his core consumer group always takes first place in all of his pieces. So worry not guys, you’re in safe hands!
Look out for more of Romero Bryan’s pieces at www.ecoluxelondonboutique.com and like us on facebook, follow us on twitter and find us on instagram.
Thinking of having a fancy headband? Why not have some tea while you’re at it!
The art of making ‘edibles’ become ‘wearable’ is part of what creativity breeds in Fashion.

As the legend of Wayúu people in Colombia says women were created from a spider therefore it is in their hands to ‘interweave’ whatever they need …
Literally for the indigenous Wayúu people, knowing how to weave is a symbol of creativity, intelligence and wisdom, a practice that is past on from one generation to the next, during puberty when girls can only be around their female relatives who teach them all the duties and social behavior that Wayúu women must possess.
This tradition, is embraced by Hilo Sagrado Foundation creating a sustainble social business where women are enabled to produce hand made products based on their traditional practicies.
Furthermore, profits are fedback into the community and the school, where 200 children from different ethnic groups attend.
The designs are patterns of geometrical shapes and each item is made by one woman; therefore each product is one of a kind, arduous handcraft . i.e. it takes between 20 to 30 days for a bag.The Hilo Sagrado collections, includes garments, scarfs, shoes, and accessories, along with homeware decorative items such as pillowes, hammocks, fabricks and many more products.
